Pic(k) of the Week: Will Work for Beer?

Falls Church, Virginia, will soon be home to a brand spanking new brewpub & restaurant. The Mad Fox Brewing Company is scheduled to open in July 2010. It will be the only brewpub in Falls Church proper * and indeed the only brewery ever in the city.

Will work for beer?

  • General Manager Bruce Higgs
  • investor Randy Barnette
  • Brewmaster Bill Madden
YFGF has posted often about Mr. Madden, a doyen of Washington D.C. area brewers. As a principal of Mad Fox, he now will be able to do it his way.

  • * Sweetwater Tavern of Merrifield, Virginia, has a Falls Church address but actually lies outside of the city in Fairfax County.
  • A brewpub is a restaurant that includes a brewery on its premises. Since a brewpub combines the functions of manufacturer, distributor, and retailer —three functions that most US states keep separate by laws collectively known as the 'three-tier system'— brewpubs exist as special legal exemptions.
